Download or read book Martha written by Amanda Harvey Purse and published by FeedARead.com. This book was released on 2019-02-23 with total page 462 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In the August of 1888, Martha Tabram, sadly passed away in an alleyway within Whitechapel, London. This has led her to be one of the first suggested Jack the Ripper victims. However, as much as there are arguments for and against this statement, a question still arises, was that all, that Martha Tabram was? 2018, was the 130th anniversary of Martha's death and as much as we should remember the ladies that had passed away in the 'autumn of terror' of 1888, to remember the anniversary of someone's death is not a positive thing. However, what if we can scratch that, reverse it and flip that idea, on it's head? What if we can celebrate the 150th anniversary of Martha's wedding day? What if we could celebrate the 170th anniversary of Martha's birth? Wouldn't that be more positive? Luckily enough, 2019 gives us both of these anniversary's, so let's do something different, let's work together within this book to get to know Martha a little more. Also within this book: The life stories of the policemen, the doctor, the coroner, the photographer and the witnesses involved in this Victorian investigation will be discussed. Martha is a part of the factual series about the lives of the people involved in the Jack the Ripper case case by the same author: Jack and Old Jewry: The City of London Policemen who Hunted the Ripper, the award-winning Inspector Reid: The Real Ripper Street and The Cutbush Connections: In Flowers In Blood and in the Ripper case. Amanda Harvey Purse is an historical researcher for the City of London Police Museum, a member of the Metropolitan Police Heritage Society, a historial writer for websites and magazines.

Download or read book Inspector Reid: The Real Ripper Street written by Amanda Harvey Purse and published by FeedARead.com. This book was released on 2018-03-12 with total page 168 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The serial killer later known as Jack the Ripper, haunted London's smog filled streets in the year of 1888. This killer is still unknown, causing there to be many suspects and many suspect books. This is not one of them. What if 130 years on since these horrid Ripper murders, we flip the case on its head and instead of focusing on who the killer might have been, we focus on who the men were that hunted the murderer instead? Inspector Edmund John James Reid was one of these men. He was probably as well known in his lifetime as he is today, thanks to a certain television programme, Ripper Street. However have you ever wondered if Inspector Reid has been portrayed correctly? How much of what we are watching is accurate to the man, his career and his life? Well, let us try and find out about the man behind the uniform, the man that was just as interesting as the cases he worked on and the man that, sadly lays in his last resting place, 100 years since his passing, without a headstone.(Something the author hopes this book might help to change) With brand new information and family photographs that have never been published before, maybe just maybe Edmund Reid will be more than a name mentioned within the Jack the Ripper case
Download or read book The Cutbush Connections: In Flowers, Blood and the Ripper Case written by Amanda Harvey Purse and published by FeedARead.com. This book was released on 2018-09-17 with total page 314 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In the year of 1888, a killer now known as Jack the Ripper, roamed the streets of Whitechapel and the City of London. Being a policeman within this period can seem to make anyone famous for being just that. However, some names might stick in our minds better than others and we might not instantly think of this policeman, at first. And yet, if we search for him we might find, through suggestions and opinions that this policeman may have stronger links to this case without him even trying... Was he related to a Jack the Ripper suspect? What does his sudden and shocking death mean? However, shouldn't we try to get to know this man's family tree? Shouldn't we try to find out about the man behind the career? The life before the death? In The Cutbush Connections: Please meet Superintendent Charles Henry Cutbush. We will discover his background through his interesting family members. We will imagine him being carried into church as a baby, a young man taking on responsibilities and when he moves to London to become a policeman, having a family of his own. We learn of the cases he may have been involved in, including the Jack the Ripper case. With new information inside this book, we can perhaps ask more questions as we try to understand the sudden passing of him. So maybe, just maybe, he will be more than his suggested connections to a Ripper suspect. Maybe he will be more than just the way he died. Maybe Charles Henry Cutbush will be more than a name within a famous case and maybe together, we can all think of him as the human being that above all else, he simply was.

Download or read book Snapshots written by Eliot Parker and published by Morgan James Publishing. This book was released on 2020-02-04 with total page 154 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Each story within Snapshots places the characters in situations where their past behaviors will be changed in a moment that is like a snapshot picture: freezing in time who they are in a moment but facing new challenges that will alter that snapshot and create a new reality. Eudora Welty’s quote “A good snapshot keeps a moment from going away” is a theme that permeates all of the stories in Eliot Parker’s collection of short stories, Snapshots. These stories are set in West Virginia, Ohio, and Kentucky. In the plots of the stories, the makeup of the characters is more interesting and important than the circumstances that the characters find themselves trying to manage. Each protagonist finds themselves in a complicated set of personal and professional relationships. By their nature, relationships are complicated. The protagonists in these stories are shaped by their backgrounds, life experiences, and expectations of other people. Conflicts arise for these protagonists when decisions and choices made by others alter the expectations and circumstances expected by the protagonists. In each of these stories, the lives, values, and beliefs held by the characters are deconstructed and each of them face a new reality brought on by an experience or situation that forces them to reexamine who they are and who they need to become. Each of these characters occupy a variety of professional spaces: cops, a rich, successful couple, convicted criminals, and others grieving the loss of a loved one and grieving the absence of love.
